A Submarine Rescue Chamber was used for the first time since the Squalus incident in 1939. It  occurred in 2000 by a team of divers from the U.S.  They took the chamber on a C5 from San Diego to Singapore.  Then onto a Russian Merchant Vessel with a big fantail.  They went to the So. China Sea in 200' of water where they successfully demonstrated rescue from a Sinagore, a Japanese, and a Korean Submarine. 
This same site had the SRC loaded when the Russian Kursk went down but they were told to stand down. 

The author of the book "View Through a Faceplate Window" is Ross A. Garcia.  He was a Navy Master Diver.  He now is the Ship Superintendent at the Cavalla Historical Submarine site. 
Those who do not read have no advantage over those who cannot!
